    NCAA Tourney

    We have all been critical this year, of our pitchers, our coaches, and each other. And of course we don’t know what will happen vs. Tennessee. But it might be useful to step back and consider how our team came through in a crunch. Performances by Huff, outstanding, then Siegel, amazing, helps...

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    What happened to the kg01 we have had for so long? His place has been taken by a thoughtful, reasoned and informed poster who just showed up on June 1!

    ACC Tournament 2022

    in spite of everything, I think so too.

    Bubba and Tristan

    Have not heard anything on Bubba, but he has now gone through two “senior day“ celebrations, and with a degree and a child, I expect him to move on. Tristan had some recent family issues causing him to miss practices and class. The decision was for him to focus on academics instead of BB to...

    GT at ND on the ACCN 2/26

    Thanks for your comment @HenryUsher. Maybe we can (should) turn this thread into a “Thank you Ush” tribute. It would be well deserved. Without his (sometimes frantic) energy, maturity, enthusiasm, leadership and intensity, this season would have been even more disappointing. Ush is fun to...

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    I think I agree with all you said (typed). Posters who try to say what the “big donors” or the “moneymen” think are almost comical. They are very sure of themselves, with little clue of what the real situation is.

    GT +9 @ Syracuse Monday

    Preparation might be an issue this game. According to IG, our charter plane was cancelled and the team spent yesterday on a bus to Syracuse.

    GT +9 @ Syracuse Monday

    Opening Vegas line. Bookies had it wrong vs Pitt, maybe again?

    Wright State - Opening Weekend

    I certainly don’t claim the ability to construct the best batting order, but if the fear is that Simpson stealing likely takes the bat out of Parada’s hands, we either stop the steal (which negates an important weapon), change the order, or accept Kevin getting intentionally walked at times...

    Wright State - Opening Weekend

    Maybe Parada should not be hitting behind Simpson?

    Wright State - Opening Weekend

    My first baseball forum “ignore”. Don’t know what some posters are trying to accomplish.

    @Pitt Saturday 7:00 pm

    Kind of surprising, but in Vegas we open as 4 point favorites. After NC State, maybe the bookies figure we come out ”highly motivated”. I sure hope so.

    ZERO commits

    COVID extra year has really made roster management extra difficult. We didn’t get any portal transfers last summer, in part because candidates didn’t know if Jose and Moses were coming back as COVID Super Seniors.

    ZERO commits

    Usher and Parham don’t count, they are COVID Super Seniors. So we only lose Moore and Devoe (potentially, they could also stay for a COVID year).

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    Unless the rules have changed, you can resign from a Service Academy any time before starting your third year. After that you only get out if you get kicked out (such as committing a violation of the Honor Code). If you do resign during those first two years, there is no debt to be repaid, but...
